Wooden lamps and modern design

Wooden lamps were traditionally made using a hot steam pressure technique. This was a time-consuming process of cutting out wooden arrows, heating them with steam, bending them gently, and then drying them. This method took a lot of time and was difficult to scale up.

Modern techniques are more about using 3D programming and CNC milling. By cutting out two-dimensional plates to exact dimensions, you can then put these together in a 3D model.

This new production method opens up previously impossible design combinations of lamps and wood, which more and more designers are discovering.
